Reports from Asia said that Taiwan is sick of being lumbered with the dumping tag. The Taiwanese government is responding to an anti-dumping case brought by US DRAM company Micron last Friday. According to government agency the Ministry of Economic Affairs, output from the fabs on the island only account for two per cent of the US market. Although Micron filed the fresh case last week, only a few days after receiving half a billion dollars of investment from chip giant Intel, it did not identify which company was involved. However, sources said that there was only one Taiwanese company currently producing the 64Mbit parts of which Micron was complaining. A representative for Taiwanese company Mosel said: "All I know is there's a case against our company for patent infringement. "People said that the only part of Texas Instruments (TI) that made money was the legal department and now Micron has assumed that mantle. They [Micron] have obviously thrown a blanket over Taiwan Inc." ®
